the massive front gates to the Mabel Dodge Luhan House is a
setting that has changed very little from the days when Mabel
use to look out over her domain and view the Sacred Mountain
from the third-story solarium.
Under tower willows and cottonwoods, and with the soothing trickle
of water in the acequia, it’s easy to imagine how some
of the greatest minds of the twentieth century were inspired
here. Still secluded at the end of a quiet dead-end road not
far from the center of town, the house remains an oasis for
physical and spiritual renewal.
The retreat-style conference center makes use of four housing
and meeting spaces including the historic Big House which was
Mabel’s private home; the Gate House and Auntie’s
House both of which house her staff and occasionally her guests;
and the 1970s Juniper House, our newest accommodation built
to provide additional housing and a large classroom.
